Day at the Beach

My cousin and I decided to take Emily and Katie to Sandsend for the day. We stopped at a car park overlooking Whitby and had a picnic lunch, which the girls loved.

We all paddled, built sandcastles, sailed boats, flew a kite and generally had a great time. Sylvia and Emily went and bought us all an ice cream.

Well, I was supposed to be sharing an ice cream with Katie, but she had other ideas. She gets her love of chocolate and ice cream from me, so I guess I cannot complain.

The only bad bit was the car breaking down at 5.30 and having to wait for the AA to recover us at 11.30 p.m.

Meeting the family

"What an ugly lot!" This is Louis meeting his grandad, grandma and great-grandad for the first time. Obviously they are so boring he might just as well sleep through it all. As you can see, even dad was exhausted.

Think mummy must have got her feet up somewhere.

Louis - again

These photos were taken just after Louis was born. The top left hand one was taken my his Dad on his mobile phone and it was the first photo was saw of Louis.

The embellishments used to decorate the page were a card kit which I had bought at a papercraft show.

Little Mother

Well I did not manage to do a blog every Sunday. Last Sunday I was at a quilting workshop and I have spent all this weekend picking over 15lb of blackcurrants, so blogging has taken a back seat. I promise to try harder in future.

Emily is totally besotted with Louis. These photos were taken when Louis was only a couple of weeks old. She could not wait to hold him.

I love this photo of both their hands.

Obviously Louis feels quite safe with Emily nursing him!
